Well my lovely visitors left this morning :-(
It was so nice to catch up with them. We talked solid all weekend and still had things we hadn't talked about. LOL!!!
I didn't make any cards whilst my visitors were around but did sit at the dining room table and put all the inserts into all the cards I had stock piled ready for a sale I have coming up in September. Still need to make lots more cards but at least this meant that I have a good supply completely ready. This is my least favourite part of card making - putting the inserts in and packaging them up. (But it was something I could do whilst we were "putting the world to rights").
Today I have had a clear up of my craft space .. .. .. as I promised myself last night. I had had a bit of a disaster with some embossing powder and it seems to have blown everywhere!!!
It was nice to read that lots of you fellow bloggers work in a messy craftroom too .. .. .. .. and Sarita - I wasn't directing my comments at you - though I find it hard to believe you could possibly mess that beautiful room up!!.
Anyway, enough waffle and on with the job in hand .. .. .. my Penny Black Challenge card which is a bit late this week.
It was a colour challenge this week and your creation has to include the colours, Blue, Tan and Cream.
Yesterday I shared a quick card that included an image I bought off Jill's blog - well tonight's card features the other stamp I bought.
I love Penny Black stamps so much and as soon as I get a new image I cannot wait to use it. I love this little chappie. (I am becoming aware that I say this an awful lot!!!).
So, here is my creation:
Image: Penny Black 2365F "Field of Dreams"
Backing paper and sentiment cut from Dovecraft "Masculine" papers.
Nestabilities: Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
I also need to share a couple of awards - not that I deserve them because I don't pass them on!! Bad girl!!! I just cannot choose who to give them too. I want everyone to have them. Please someone take one or all that are anywhere on my blog.
My first award is from Lorraine at Coldwaters2 You get the treat of some beautiful cards and lovely music when you visit Lorraine!
Shirley at Nannieflash Shirley also has a lovely blog that is well worth a visit and Shirley leaves the most lovely and encouraging comments.
Thank you for taking the time to call by.
Love Jules xx
- A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce always carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.
